ST. LOUIS (AP) _ The family of a 4-year-old suburban St. Louis boy killed in an alleged hit-and-run accident that also injured his brother are about to say their final farewells.

Services for Trayeshon Williams were planned for Friday at St. Joseph Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis. He died Oct. 5 when he was hit while trying to cross a Pagedale street.

The suspected motorist, 54-year-old Ricky Weeden of St. Louis, is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash. Court records show that he’s had no valid driver’s license for nearly 20 years, and that he’s been convicted of driving while intoxicated at least six times.

Online court records don’t show whether Weeden has an attorney, and he does not have a listed home telephone number.
